You can pass the complete file path on command:

Code: Select all

copy /b c:\path\to\love.exe+c:\path\to\your\game.love c:\path\to\game.exe
passing only the file name makes it search on current folder and/or on PATH environment.

To my knowledge, yes, but only with some other program, like Resource Hacker for instance.

I'm on a mac, I want to point out that if you're mac is fairly upto date (The free update on the app store) Then there's an easier way to make a zip folder, all you need to do is right click/highlight the file(s) you want to put in a .zip, then right click, press "compress". Then you're done, it will have made a .zip file, now viewing and editing the contents, you'll need a program for that. (I'm still looking for one, I'll be sure to edit this if I find one.)

For viewing .zip (or .love, whatever) contents, you can use Terminal:

Code: Select all

zip -sf file.zip
where "file.zip" is your filename.

For adding files:

Code: Select all

zip -r file.zip -i \*.lua
This will include all .lua files on current folder and all subfolders to file.zip (equal files on .zip will be updated)

For removing files:

Code: Select all

zip -d file.zip file1 folder1/file1 folder1/file2 \*.o
This will remove "file1", "file1" and "file2" on "folder1" and all files that end with ".o" in all folders.

Just execute "man zip" on Terminal, it will give all "zip" commands :nyu:

Yeah, there is already a game.exe, but when i run it, it says "No game"
I just renamed my game.love to game1.love but there is still nothing after cmd window. Maybe i do something wrong from the begining? I saw some other games with love like Mari0 they have dll files in distros etc... i dont know realy.

It's always better to do these commands on command line (press Win+R, then type "cmd" without quotes, then hit Enter). It probably will show you some message if something goes wrong.

Wow, thank you, i did it in CMD and after adding "" to paths and it says 1 file copied!
And yep there is a game1.exe, but still it says no game after starting.
